Tween Scene Prettie Girls

Tween Scene Prettie Girls

Launched in 2015, the Tween Scene Prettie Girls were part of the One World project which saw the same characters turned into different kinds of dolls. Designed by Tonner Doll, they stood 16 inches high and used the same body as the 2011 LittleMissMatched line, with joints at knee and elbow.

Little Miss Matched

Little Miss Matched Dolls

Launched in autumn 2011, LMM dolls stood 15.25 inches tall, with rooted hair and oversized 'cartoonish' heads. They had ten points of articulation and, like all Tonner products, were nice quality. Little Miss Matched was an existing brand specialising in girls' apparel and accessories, including their signature three mismatched socks.

c. 2013 the LMM dolls were repackaged in plainer boxes and Artsy was dropped from the line. That was the end of them, though Michaels released soft toy versions in 2012. (Artsy - Rock n Roll - Sporty - Uptown)

Stardoll by Barbie

Mattel Stardoll by Barbie

Stardoll is a paper doll dress up site geared towards teenage girls; in 2016 it had over 400 million users! In 2011 they went into collaboration with Mattel to release a range of fashion dolls. Each doll came with a voucher for 50 Star dollars to be spent on the site, plus a week's Superstar membership.

The dolls stood 12 inches high, rooted hair and applied lashes, and had bodies designed in the same pose as Stardoll avatars. The trade off was that the doll's legs didn't move, and their larger feet and different body shape made it difficult for them to share clothes with other Barbie lines. There were eight dolls released, two each based on the looks of four different Stardoll stores: Bonjour Bizou, Fallen Angel, Pretty n Love, .

Although the second wave of dolls never made it into production, some promo images did do the rounds in 2012. The lines would have been called 'Voile' and 'Rio', respectively.

Disney Star Darlings

Jakks Pacific Star Darlings

This line totally passed me by - but I wish it hadn't because the dolls are adorable! Based on Disney's Star Darlings books and cartoons, Jakks Pacific launched these tie-in dolls in November 2015. They stood around 11 inches high, had rooted hair and inset eyes, and were fully articulated bar the ankles.

Unfortunately the line suffered from oversaturation, with release after release following quick on the heels of each other but with very little to distinguish them. Poor sales lead to the line being discontinued in 2017.

★ Libby. (Box Front / Back)
★ Sage. (Box Front / Back) - see review at ToyBoxPhilosopher.
★ Scarlet. (Box Front / Back)
★ Vega. (Box Front / Back)

The first wave of dolls came in a holographic box, complete with a light up stand and pieces to make a wish necklace. Initially available through the Disney Store, they retailed for $30 each. In the UK they first hit stores in Spring 2016, priced at £20.95 each. They were packaged in the international variant packaging which used name stickers to differentiate the dolls, rather than printed pictures.

Pinkie Cooper

Pinkie Cooper

Pinkie Cooper was a real dog of a fashion doll. Seriously! Created by Anjanette Abell and her brother Carter Bryant, the guy behind the Bratz dolls, Pinkie and her besties were based on spaniels. The dolls stood 9 inches high and hit toy stores in 2013. They were articulated at the elbows, had inset eyes and lashes, and boasted the unique feature of being able to swap their hair-slash-ears between dolls.

Sales failed to match up to expectations - despite a tie-in webseries - and Bridge Direct discontinued the line early in 2014.
